weapons, we think it is likely the supreme court will uphold these provisions. in defense of those who do seem confused about the nature of our second amendment rights, the supreme court has not done a great job of clarifying what is the scope of our second amendment rights. as most of you know, in 2008, the supreme court held that the second amendment protects the right of individuals to have guns for personal protection. two years after that case, it struck down a lot in washington, d.c., that banned handguns and made it unlawful for you to use a shotgun or rifle for self-defense. two years after that the supreme court held the second amendment similarly applied to state and local governments and effectively declared chicago's ban on handguns unconstitutional. advocates make it clear exactly how the courts should go about interpreting the second amendment and applying it to other gun-control laws. it is one thing to identify a right in the constitution, but where the rubber hits the road is figuring out which laws are constitutional and which laws are unconstitutional, so they asked the

disingenuous, and i'm being polite. if anybody was listening to the defense appropriation bill at the end of last year, just before they let us go over the fiscal cliff, republicans added $20 billion more than what the president asked for for the defense appropriation bill. this is the 20% there are going to have to cut during sequestration. now the defense department, if you keep the continuing resolution versus making a budget, they will get $680 billion this year. $20 billion more than what they ask for. yet they cannot pass a sandy bill. america, wake up. republicans that are in charge, and i guess you ququality party, they're just out to take our money. the poor and disenfranchised, they just laugh and say get a job, and they will not give you a job. host: on twitter -- in michigan on the independent line is terry. caller: good morning and thank you for taking my call and for having a program. i just want to say that i do think, from the perspective of spending, there has been a lot of conversation on the bell avenue side and the president did not get what he wanted -- on the revenue

have people recognize that when it comes to defense spending. some of the same people say we have to cut spending or complain that government jobs don't do anything, but when it comes to the defense contractor in their district, they think it is an important part of the economy in their district and that we should not stop spending on that. let's just make sure we're not spending on those other people. [no audio] my hope is that common sense prevails. that is always my preference. i think that would be the preference of the american people and it would be good for the economy. let me just repeat. if the issue is deficit reduction, getting our deficit sustainable over time, getting our debt in a sustainable place, then democrats and republicans in congress will have a partner in me. we could achieve that fairly quickly. we know what the numbers are and we know what needs to be done. we know what a balanced approach would take and we have done half of the deficit reduction we need to stabilize. there has probably been more pain and trauma in getting there than we needed. finishing t

've already made to priorities other than medicare, medicaid, social security and defense mean that we spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of our economy than it has -- than has been true for a generation. and that's not a recipe for growth. so we've got to do more both to stabilize our finances over the medium and long term, but also spur more growth in the short term. i've said i'm open to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i've also said that we need more revenue through tax reform by closing loopholes in our tax code for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they don't think it's fair, for example, to ask a senior to

that the politicians are going after, the semiautomatics are the most popular guns bought for self-defense. we need to look at whether these measures are actually going to have an impact or not and a lot of them are just political and are not going to keep our children safer. >> robert costa, we heard from senator joe manchin over the weekend and others. they want a broad base. they said you're not going to get a semiautomatic ban unless you have bettered attention to mental illness and obama today said that the gun lobby people were ginning up fear among americans who otherwise want reform. where is this thing going to play out? >> larry, i just walked over here in the u.s. capitol. the house is now back in session. i spoke with some lawmakers. especially among republican legislator, there's not a clamor to move towards an assault weapon ban, but there's a real discussion about background checks, about limiting the amount of bullets that could be in a magazine. and these are only preliminary discussions. so what president obama did today by talking about an executive order, he is trying to urge th

. >> and jill, i know the defense secretary panetta has made a statement about it today. is it possible the u.s. might take military action? >> well, they might. obviously, if they want to try to save the people who are in there being held hostage. but anderson, you know, there are two reasons that this group apparently is giving for having carried out this act. one is they say it's retaliation for algeria giving france the ability to fly over algerian territory, bringing as part of this military operation in mali. but the other thing they say is that they want the release of their own prisoners who are being held. a little unclear why they're being held, et cetera. but the u.s. officials that we've been speaking to believe that this was not just some type of opportunistic thing, that it was planned in advance, at least to some degree. >> bob, right now you had a failed french commando raid to release a french hostage in somalia, which didn't get a lot of attention. but that happened several days ago. two commandos i guess were killed, as well as apparently the hostage. how difficult an opera

the hostages being held right now tonight by islamic extremists in algeria. defense secretary leon panetta is calling it a terrorist attack. the hostages were taken when about 20 extremists attacked a gas field. this is a file picture of the field. it's in the eastern part of algeria. it's partly owned by the energy company bp. now algeria's interior minister said that two people were killed in the attack. it's believed to be retaliation for algeria's support for the french offensive in mali. a u.s. state department official said that as many as ten americans were work at the oil field. the state department hasn't said how many of them right now may be hostages. we are told a special operations team is standing by, quote, on a very short string. obviously this is a very fluid situation. i'm joined no by cnn foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty and former cia officer bob baer. jill, you've been working your sources today. what is the latest? >> we believe obviously this happened at a gas field. if you look at the map, it's in eastern algeria. that's 37 miles from the libyan border.

defense officials the u.s. could be helping to bring an entire french mechanized infantry battalion into mali. that would involve maybe 30 trips of big cargo flights, bringing weapons, troops, and heavy vehicles into the fight in mali. we're told at this point, it looks like the airport there is not equipped to handle such a big airlift. there's a lot of other planes and flights tying up the runway, so to speak. so it may be that these flights land in neighboring countries. but regardless of whether that airport clears up and where they land, these flights will have u.s. military security forces, but they're only there to protect both the aircraft and the air crew. >> 30 cargo flights. that's pretty significant. thanks very much to chris lawrence. and "outfront" tonight, now democratic congressman adam schiff, a member of the house intelligence committee. and congressman, thanks so much for taking the time. i want to start with this developing story, as we're trying to figure out what the details are, so many of them are conflicting. let me just start by asking you this. you know, e

and just about the inability for anyone to stop weapons flying all over. >> reporter: defense secretary leon panetta issued a warning to those running training camps. >> terrorists should be on notice. that they will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in algeria, not in north africa, not anywhere. >> reporter: so far, this al qaeda group has been focused in africa. but counterterrorism officials are concerned that if these training camps continue to flourish, their ambitions may expand. libya is right on the southern shore of the mediterranean. and officials are concerned that militants could try for an attack in europe or european militants could come to libya, get training, and then try to carry out an attack back home. erin? >> thanks very much to chris lawrence. fran townsend as former home land counterterrorism advisor to george bush. stewart holladay, special political affairs at the united nations. stewart, let me start with you. in chris' reporting there there was a sound bite from president obama from a very different time. but that sound bite, he said libya is a success, it's a

, somehow got behind the defense in overtime, peyton manning forces this pass and intercepted, and six plays later, and now, in double overtime the ravens kick a game winning 47 yard field goal to stun the broncos, 38- 38-35. and then from san francisco, 49ers qb, kaepernick, rushing, 181 yards and two touchdowns, and had the the game of his lifetime. those are your headlines. >> thank you very much. i would have had to have read that phonetically. >> kaepernick? >> yes, let's check with rick reichmuth. >> rick: the dangers of early morning tv, i fell asleep right at double overtime, i have no how it happened, but i woke up when the game was done, i was bummed. warm across the southeast, enjoy it, this is all about to change and once it goes away, it's gone for a long time. the cold air across the west will replace it and the warm air up to the west and that's going to be a bit of a change that's going to be happening, another very cold morning out to the west and factor in the wind and it's brutal out there. minus 17, and minus 24 in glasgow and a lot of cold air still there, but it's a slo
